Free community improvement workshop to be presented at Northwestern

March 29, 2010

Don't miss out on the chance to get organized, get going, get beautiful and get green by attending a free community improvement workshop sponsored by Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB). Northwestern Oklahoma State University will play host to the KOB workshop on Thursday, April 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the Student Center Ranger Room.

Lunch is included in this workshop and will be catered by Chartwell’s.

Northwestern’s student organization Conserving Our Ranger Environment (CORE) will make a presentation during the event.

Registration is still being accepted for those interested in expanding a community improvement organization, starting a new organization or simply exploring the idea of starting a group to beautify and enrich the quality of community life.

KOB staff will walk attendees through a free online resource “The Hometown Makeover/Community Improvement Guide.” This resource is available at

Local organization members will explain the benefits of using the guide, and there will be plenty of time to ask questions and network. Get tips, tools and ideas to improve the aesthetic, environmental and sustainable quality of community life.
